I have the end caps off of my 2.5" Hard Krome American Classic so I can add the Smartpartz Hard Kore Quiet Baffles. The visible part of the aluminum end caps is just a 3/4" ring of chrome. The chrome has definitely seen better days - there are some sections that have completely flaked off (the pipes themselves are fine). I was thinking of removing all the chrome and black anodizing the caps; thinking the flat-black ring on the end of the pipes would look decent on my black X.
The attractive part about using black anodize is that I have a readily available service at a very reasonable price.
Does anyone foresee a problem with using black anodize as the only finish?
To remove the remaining chrome, my plan is use emery cloth and sandblasting. Is that a viable plan of attack?
